RESEÑA: Passenger

Young Adult - Fiction - Alexandra Bracken - Bloombury - Passenger Series 1 -

passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.
In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now. Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not. Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever

Passenger es un libro que os enamorará desde el primer momento que llegue a vuestras manos. La portada es preciosa, una auténtica obra de arte. Os recomiendo la versión de tapa dura, es simplemente adorable. Al principio la historia avanza algo lenta y es todo algo confuso pero una vez el libro te atrapa no podréis parar. Etta nos llevará con ella a través del tiempo, buscando un objeto a contrarreloj con la ayuda de un pirata. Si os gustó la triología Joyas Preciosas (Rubí, Zafiro y Esmeralda) de Kerstin Gier os gustará Passenger. 

Etta es una violinista que se tiene que adaptar rápidamente a grandes cambios en su vida. Nos encontramos ante una joven divertida, fuerte y valiente. Etta me ha recordado, en algunos momentos, a uno de mis personajes favoritos, si existiera una versión joven de Clare Fraser. Nicholas tiene una vida difícil, debido a su origen en una sociedad del siglo XVIII. La historia de amor es de esas que avanzan despacio pero junto a la trama y con la evolución de los personajes. Alexandra escribe de una manera muy elegante por lo que se disfruta cada una de las páginas. Passenger ha sido mi primer contacto con esta autora y estoy deseando leer más libros suyos. De momento, este tiene una valoración de 4/5.

Passenger is a book that will make you fall in love as soon as you get it. The cover is so beautiful and if you manage to buy the hardcover version you will find it wonderful. At first, the story goes a bit slow but once you conect with the characters and the story you can't stop reading. You will follow Etta through the time, searching a very important object, with a pirate as ally. If you enjoy Kerstin Gier triology you will enjoy Passenger.
Etta is a violinist that is able to adapt herself quickly to lots of massive changes in her life. She is funny, strong and brave. Etta reminds me to one of my favourites female characters, Clare Fraser, if a younger version of herself would exist
Nicholas life is quite difficult and hard due to his origin but he is strong and very protective with Etta. Their love story is a romance that starts slowly and will advance with the main plot and adventure. 
Alexandra writes very elegant and you will enjoy each of the pages. Passenger has been my first contact with her books and I can't wait to read more. I give it 4/5 stars. 

Un libro que tenía muchas ganas de leer y que no me ha decepcionado. Esperando con muchas ganas el segundo libro. Leeré más libros de esta escritora. // A book that I couldn't wait to read and that has met my expectations. Can't wait to read the next one. I will add Alexandra to my "to-read" list.
